The word Flu that comes from the word Influenza is a contagious illness and is caused by the influenza virus. People who have a low immunity (the elderly, children, immunocompromised) are more prone to contracting flu. Flu can result in serious health issues such as pneumonia and may require hospitalization.

What are the indications of Flu?

  • Fever with or without a cough

  • Cold sweats and chills

  • Headache

  • Joints and muscles that ache

  • Fatigue

Gastrointestinal symptoms occur mostly in children. Though symptoms usually persist for a week, lassitude remains for many weeks together.

Why does it occur?

  • The main cause is the influenza virus as already mentioned and it spreads via droplet infection. When a person touches an object which is infected with the virus and touches him/herself the infection is spread. Droplet infection is when a person sneezes many droplets are expelled into the environment which can be inhaled by a person even from a distance thereby causing a Flu.

  • The incubation period for this illness is about 4 days. And a person can be infectious even 5-7 days after symptoms occur.

Treating the condition

Patients affected with Flu must do the following:

  • Stay indoors as much as possible to prevent infecting other people

  • Try to avoid meeting people

  • Get ample amount of rest and keep oneself warm

  • Drinking plenty of fluids preferably warm

  • Try to eat as much as possible though there might not be any appetite

  • Inhale steam

  • Avoid smoking and alcohol

Many people think antibiotics will help them cure the condition. However, this is not true because antibiotics don’t help in treating viral infections since they act against bacteria.
